About the Organisation

The Montessori network of schools around Australia grew from the philosophy of Maria Montessori to formulate an education system that allowed students to develop their potential in a non-competitive, caring and carefully planned environment, free of rewards and punishment. That was 100 years ago. Since then, Montessori education has grown steadily in Australia, and there are currently over 220 schools and centres nationwide.
